You know it't getting cooler when the windows start fogging up.
We woke up to heaps of condensation on the sun room windows... but not inside the house.

It won't be long before we will need to turn the DVS on in the house, and close the sunroom doors leading into the house at night.

 ABOVE:  Yes he's in his jamma pants!  He got a full TWO CUPS FULL of water off those windows.  

 ABOVE:  I got this really cool cushion off Trade Me for propping up my phone while I'm in bed.  It works a treat.

 ABOVE:  These two shrubs are doing really well on the far side of the pool.  Clearly pool water splashed on them does not hurt them.
In a couple of years they should have filled up that gap beside the boundary fence.

 ABOVE:  Coco has found all the sunny spots to bask in ... I know where she will be at any time of the day, just by looking in the sun spots.  So cute.

ABOVE:  The lawn got it's 3rd mow late yesterday afternoon.
It's still growing super fast!

Stew used the weed eater to do the edges for the first time too... so all up it took him 30 minutes to do the grass verge and our lawn.
Sure beats 4-5 hours at our Cambridge home.

Doesn't that big rock look FABULOUS?  Such a neat feature.

I'm just so happy we did this move.

We both LOVE this home.


12.30 pm: and all is well here. Steve has some pain but it's not too bad.

ABOVE: Brylee is doing my hair. Apparently I'm getting curls. *smiles*

ABOVE: 1.45 pm:  And I now have pretty curls.
And I've got cheese and bacon scones in the oven, to be followed by date/raisin and cinnamon scones.

Should be a lovely, very late lunch.

Just heard on the NEWS that New Zealand has sadly had it's first Covid-19 death, and our infection number is now 514.  A small drop in the increase in numbers from yesterday.

Well the rest of our day was quiet, as expected when you are in lock down and not going anywhere.

I cooked chicken steaks and left over macaroni cheese from last night for dinner tonight.
The mac cheese kinda curdled a bit... but we ate it anyway.  Waste not and all that.

Off to bed now... another day tomorrow.

  9. Your garden is looking great - and your lawn, so lush, compared with our sad lawn. Brylee has down a fantastic job of curling your hair - so shiny and pretty. I can almost smell those scones from here ... I'm almost tempted to make some myself - maybe another day - we've got a few weeks ahead of us that I can play around in the kitchen.
